Forrester in Mernda

Our project in Mernda with Burbank

Alfresco ceiling done

One of the few things remaining to be done on the outside has been done. The alfresco ceiling has now been done and it will still need to be painted and this will be done at a later stage.

Elsewhere tiling looks like its almost finished at least on the ground floor where we can see.

Here are some of the pictures:

Run through for fixout inspection

Early this morning we met the site supervisor for the fixout inspection. The supervisor showed us around the house and gave us an indication on when the next things will be completed.

There was no issues with the inspection which is good.

Painting is almost finished with only the balcony still to be painted.

The next stage is tiling and the tiles are scheduled for delivery today.

Here are some photos taken today:

Painting started

Painting has now started and you can see the paint through the downstair windows. I am not so sure how much of the house has been painted so far as we are locked out at the moment.

We have a meeting with the site supervisor pencilled in for during the week and there will photos coming from that.

Scaffold back for balcony

This week scaffolding was back to complete the work on the balcony. Once the balcony work is done and the scaffold is removed the facade will be more clearer.

Apart from that both doors leading into and out of the garage have been installed and also the work that should have been done inside.

The carpenter rough in should finish this coming week and then there will be the invoice and then the painting will start. Things are getting interesting now.

Plaster complete, site cleaned

The plaster was marked as complete in My Place and on the site we could only see the ground floor.
Also all the broken bricks have been removed leaving a clean site. Also the ground floor bricks have now been cleaned. The first floors had been cleaned already.
Apart from that there isn’t much else to write about from what we can see from the outside.

Peeping through the windows we can see the delivered doors and some timber probably for skirting but not much more.

Alfresco completed, staircase in

At last the alfresco has been completed, the structure that is. There is still the ceiling to be done.

Also inside the house the staircase has been installed. This will make it easier for the people working upstairs, they can easily go to the first floor without using the ladder that has been the means of access so far.

The plastering is moving on slowly. The ground floor has been completed and on the first floor the cornices are the only thing left to be done.

House locked, plaster starts

Finally the house has now been locked and looking through the windows you can see that installation of plaster boards has started.

There is some work on the alfresco still to be done and this looks like it has been postponed to some other time.

After the plaster phase the next one is for the carpenter to move in.

Scaffold off

Finally the scaffolding has been removed and now the house can be seen clearly.

Also the top half of the bricks were cleaned up before the scaffolding was removed.

Other little things is that the eaves have been painted and the fence on the back has been installed.

The plaster boards have been delivered and so installation will be done this week.

Downpipes installed

Not much happened this week and I am not surprised because the weather was not that great.

It looks like work on the articulation joints is completed. The eaves are finished and during the coming week they will be painted.

Meanwhile during the week we received the lockup invoice.

Here are the latest photos:

Cladding in

The cladding on the master bedroom has now been done.

Now what’s left on the front is the balcony and at the back the alfresco roof and pillars still need to be done. We are told by Burbank that the alfresco will be done when the scaffolding is completed.

Work has also started on the eaves.

It also looks like all the insulation has been completed in preparation for plastering.

The pictures from the phone today are not very good. Will add some taken using the camera later.
